1. if you have a problem with strong winds use a sleeper piece of wood to keep door open. nice and heavy, kids dont pick it up...and dogs dont chew on it like those stupid plastic stops. ad a rope for convience.

2. old paletes as a frame with a steel plate painted with chaulk board paint. it magnetic and nice and handy in the kitchen for messages etc. i used a set of old spoons that we never used...but you can what ever you want.

Thank you pursekeys for the info on the chairs! I love the Windsor type back on them. We have some of the same type of spring rocking chairs made of iron and love them for their comfort, durability, and beauty. But ours have a squared back with a knob on either side. I can't tell you how many times I have bent over and nearly knocked myself in the head on one of those knobs! Thank you again!

Thanks to John Whipple for some important comments. We live in a contemporary 1974 house, and although its overall design is still very much in today's style of living, we discovered that the 1974 plumbing is not big enough to handle a direct connection to the washing machine and would be very expensive and disruptive to replace. As a result, we can't eliminate the large laundry tub that handles the water discharge and are currently looking for something in stainless steel that is easier to clean than the existing acrylic (?) model. If you live in a pre 80's house, make sure your plumbing can handle a direct water discharge while planning your remodel. Also, we discovered that our existing laundry chute is considered a fire hazard and we boarded it up; I'm surprised that they are still being made. I still use my top loading washer; it runs perfectly after 13 years, so my initial interest in moving to a more "fashionable" front load look in the laundry room has waned considerably. Do your technical homework before remodeling a wet area that requires certain safety standards in plumbing, electrical, and floor surfaces.

My stove is more of a fire hazard than my laundry chute. People can go overboard worrying about every safety hazard in life.
